try unregister and re-register Windows installer.

  1. "Start" menu, Type Run in the search bar and hit enter.

  2. "Open" box, type "msiexec /unreg", and then press ENTER.

  3. "Start" menu, Type” Run” in the search bar and hit enter.

  4. "Open" box, type "msiexec /regserver", and then press ENTER.

re run the installer for your program

Hi Fruitbat, I did that and tried to re-run the installation and got this: click here can only assume that it is a Firewall problem. Please can I ask how do i allow this program, bearing in mind as it hasn't installed yet so isn't in the list of programs?

buel - if you have already downloaded the program and not connecting to the Internet, then you could try disabling your Firewall, install, the re-enable your Firewall.

Hi, Thanks for that. I have just disabled the Firewall and still get the samemessage? What on earth could this be, please?

I would re-download in case its a corrupted download then retry.

Hmmmmm......just downloaded, unpacked and run Ccleaner just fine?

Try using Revo to uninstall it completely. Reboot and run Ccleaner. Try installing it again. PS I would make all your albums on Photobucket private.

Thanks rDave, I think i've done the photobucket thing. The program doesn't appear on the Revo list but I'll try to Ccleaner, restart then Ccleaner again and give it a shot!! Thank you for this.
